I'm convinced that the Dead had a designated PITB hippie timer backstage who would let them know when it was time to land. On this particular night this person was lying on their back with a head full of acid and time just went away.

Aloha Diamondhead --I am pretty sure that was my job at Red Rocks in 85 but they were cranking the Blind Faith album on the P.A. then came 'The frozen Logger' and just about all of my favorite Jerry tunes in the first set.
Shakedown>Crazy fingers to open Set two.
a Sunday Samson & Delilah, Uncle Johns
By the time they hit 'Playin' I was toast.
Brent with the first Hey Jude reprise.
Truckin>Comes a Time>LOVELIGHT.
Johnny B /baby blue --as I looked out over as much of North America as I had ever seen with two feet on land and my HEAD in the clouds.

As far as the 46 minutes of-- P.I.T.B-- I was thinking maybe it was a Seastones sandwich or someone was counting in the set break. So it was a nice surprise indeed.
I do get what -Space Jogger- is saying that there are tighter more overall satisfying versions but still I counted at least three ovations inside the song itself on the available IA Matrix.
